Mackenzie Reed has officially been stood up. Not only has she wasted two years on Mr. So Not Interested but now she doesn’t even have pizza and the Mets to keep her company. Then he walks into her life—more than six feet of rugged, hot stranger. Maybe, just for tonight, Mac can pretend to be a girl she’s not. After all, she deserves a little no-strings fun…

As far as Wesley Porter is concerned, one night with Mackenzie isn’t nearly enough. She’s a mystery he wants to solve—if he can keep her from running for the door every time they touch. There’s obviously some serious chemistry between them, so why is she fighting it?

As one sexy hookup turns into another (and another), Wesley is determined to prove they were made for each other. But Mac has been hurt before, and she refuses to fall for this sexy, ridiculously perfect guy. In fact, she has every intention of fighting it…unless he can convince her otherwise.

REVIEW – A hot and intense insta-love story that builds into something deeper. Very sexy,and very funny at times, but this story builds into something deeper and more emotional than i thought it would do. I loved Mac i found her so relatable the way she is with her dress sense and attitude to men. But hey when a man like Wesley comes into your life its going to get hot and complicated fast. A great easy read of a book that had a few surprises i was not expecting. Loved it so much.

IN THE LINE OF FIRE…

Former SEAL Malachai “Mac” MacCarrick is all about the future he’s created with his Navy brothers in Eagle Securities, taking assignments in the most dangerous places, and doing things no one but ex-military would attempt. But when an urgent phone call brings his troubled past—and the woman he once loved—into the present, it’s a chance to redeem himself that he can’t refuse.

STRAIGHT TO THE HEART…

An investigative journalist researching an explosive story, Delaney Shapiro tells herself she got over Mac—and his role in her brother’s death—a long time ago. But the first moment she sees him at her bedside in an overseas hospital, she knows it’s not true. Every moment together rekindles the desire that once burned between them, and now that she’s a target for an emerging Russian arms dealer, Mac won’t let her out of his sight. To protect her, he’ll risk it all—including his life…

REVIEW – So this story has a lot going on. We have danger and romance, a lost love and a deep seated regret. But still the story flows smoothly and i have t say i loved Mac he is just the right side of alpha with Delaney. Tough and strong when he needs to be and gentle but firm when its called for. Delaney i totally could see how your feelings are all over the place for Mac but let me tell you sometimes you are asking for trouble though i love her independance and brains. Danger and suspense add another level to the story but the thing that gives this story five stars is the reminiscing of the past and learning to leave it behind. Not a need to read the others in the series but if you do you get a greater understanding of some of the secondary characters who are just as interesting to read.

Blurb
Ladies,
 
I know how things
look from the outside. I’m rich. I’m a successful surgeon. I’m handsome. I
should have women lining up from here to New Jersey clawing for space in my
bed, but there’s one huge catch.
 
I’m f*cking
awkward.
 
Every time I get a
date, I spoil it. Asked if she’s pregnant? Check. Forgot her name? Check.
Bought a meat lover’s pizza for my vegan girlfriend? Check, check, check.
 
This is why my best
friend, romance fanatic Allie Jenkins, has declared that she’s swooping in to
save the day. She’s prepared a list of required reading straight from The
Ripped Bodice, and I’m supposed to take notes, learn from the best, and put
that shit into action. After all, practice makes perfect, right? 
 
Wrong. 
REVIEW – For all the book lovers out there who swoon over the perfect men in books this story is for you. A story that combines your knowledge of romance stories with the hilariousness of an awkward hot guy. Sweet,oh so funny and an amazing cuteness factor, but never fear it is also a sexy story that Lily Kate has wrote. I mean i know men read romance stories, but this story gives us a possible insight into what men think and can learn from these books we read. Also i was surprised by a few bits in the book, some things i did not expect.Well worth a read, this is a new author to me, but her covers are certainly eye-catching and her blurbs sound amazing. So thanks to this book i will be reading more by this author

Wealthy socialite Olivia Barton never imagined her fiancé would disappear on what was supposed to be a routine business trip. She’s even more heartbroken and confused when a hired private investigator tracks him half a world away, to a seaside town in Colombia. But the country has recently been ravaged by a massive earthquake and deadly tsunami, shutting down outside communication and making travel all but impossible. Still, Olivia is determined to make it to Colombia to find the answers she so desperately seeks. What she needs is a guide—a mercenary.

The man named Thomas arrives in shadows, an unmistakable air of danger about him, promising to help lead her through the ruined, crime-infested country. But when Thomas and Olivia find themselves fighting an undeniable attraction, danger takes on a whole new meaning. Then again, in the lush jungles of South America, all the rules are different and Thomas and Olivia are about to discover that sometimes the thing you seek, isn’t necessarily the thing you find.

Seek is a STANDALONE novel with a small, fun connection to the Sign of Love Collection

 

REVIEW – I am a huge fan of this author, though i have not read all of her back catalogue i was really excited for this new release.

Shayla Perkins isn’t the kind of girl who makes the same mistake twice, especially when it comes to Sean “Stitch” Molina. So when he gives her the world’s biggest rejection, that’s it—she’s done. Until the sexy, silent, unavailable Sean makes Shay a very personal offer. Of course, it still doesn’t mean he’s interested in her. Or does it?

Sean has done things in life. Bad things. And he’s paid the price. All he wants now is to make up for his past by doing good in the present. And no one deserves more good than Shay. Beautiful on the inside and out, Shay is the kind of woman who should be cared for and protected—especially from a man like Sean. He’s tried to keep his feelings for her in check, but a single, reckless impulse pulls them closer than ever before.

Soon the two are sharing their biggest dreams and satisfying their deepest desires. But what will happen if the only way to truly give one another want they want most . . . is to let each other go?

 

REVIEW – If you have read the other books in the series you know some of the details of Shay and Stitch but this time we get them in all their glory. And what a glorious book it is. FYI you do not have to have read the other books in this series to appreciate this story. Stitch and Shay have the most amazing story and it is filled with emotions of all variety, i laughed,got highly emotional and shut the front door i shed a tear for them. And it takes a lot for me to get this emotional over a story peeps. Such a great writing style by J. Daniels has this romance story just flowing off the pages, i must admit i had a lazy day in bed, and my pjs as i could not put the book down when i awoke. Go read this story, and my review has stayed shy of the details to the characters story as i do not want to ruin it for your reading pleasure. 5 shining Shay and Stitch stars. PS Stitch is swoon worthy
